Illustrations by Camila do Rosario.
I recently found this amazing fellow Brazilian artist, who’s been getting some well deserved press lately, and I couldn’t wait to share her stunning work with you.
Camila is a fashion student living on the island of Florianopolis in the south of Brazil (one of my favorite places to vacation when I go back home!). She started by designing t-shirts and now she is branching out to digital art, while also exploring photography, theater and experimenting with the deconstruction of garments, so she can recycle different pieces and create her own. Her favorite activity is to get lost in papers, pens, photos, books and cafes. (Mine too!! :))
Her gorgeous mixed-media illustrations are inspired by everything around her, as well as Toulouse-Lautrec, Klimt, Hope Gangloff, Paolo Roversi, Sarah Moon, Ana Cristina César, Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso, Nara Leão, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Almodóvar, etc…
Don’t you just love the refreshing worldly vibe of her work? It reminds me of the exotic and mystic designs of Nick Bantock (Griffin and Sabine) & the graphic boho look of Anahata. But still, Camila’s art is totally unique, hip and fresh!
Who wants to join me and ask her to make some prints? See more of her work on Flickr.
